Emergency rooms often over-bill uninsured and out-of-network patients. Across the country, hospitals are billing, referring debts to debt collectors, and even suing patients for inflated amounts.
Justice Catalyst Law, a nonprofit law firm, is investigating cases to reform the healthcare industry and make medical bills fairer and more transparent.
If you thought that there appears to be no limit to what hospitals can charge you when you are uninsured or out-of-network, you may be surprised to learn that there are laws governing how much an emergency room company can charge. Recent news reports in NPR, ProPublica, and the New York Times have shown that when patients challenge these bills in court, it turns out the bills vastly inflated the amount owed.
If you think that you may have paid an inflated bill, Justice Catalyst Law’s attorneys would like to talk about your experience and potentially work to reform the industry by stopping habitually overcharges.
